Sports Letter: Multiple choice

The Independent Online
Sir: Is it possible, through the medium of your newspaper, to suggest that the replacement of the chairman of the England cricket selectors be carried out democratically. Some followers of the game are deeply suspicious of the activities on the top table, the 'old boy stuff'. Could not enthusiasts be asked to submit the name of their choice, of a recent professional cricketer to fill the post, through an independent office, such as your paper. The most popular name would get the job. We would then, as enthusiasts, have only ourselves to blame for the performances of the selection committee.

Yours faithfully,



10 August
